I think you ought to come up with some kind of motivation here: All
langugaes have their cons and pros. As far as C is concerned, it is too low
level for me to spend much time with it. C++ augments this to some extent,
but have other shortcomings, lacking features available in Objective C,
Java, and portable assembler languages. And there is the question on how to
call a C++ program from a program written in another language.
